‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Louie’, and ‘Game of Thrones’ Take Home TCA Awards
The word is out: Guys own TV. Dude-friendly shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Louie” swept the Television Critics Association awards this Saturday night.
In case you were afraid Kardashians and Real Housewives were going to eat up all that’s left of television, you can quit worrying. The Television Critics Association, a group of 200 United States and Canadian TV journalists, have made a case for male-friendly shows with the recent announcement of their annual TC A Awards.
“Louie,” the FX series starring comedian Louis C.K took the award for Best Comedy. The HBO fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” won this year’s award for “Program of the Year.” AMC drama “Breaking Bad” won for best drama. The series’ star Bryan Cranston actually hosted the event.
The Television Critics Association even honored a guy-friendly show of yore: “Cheers.” Because what’s better than a bunch of people hanging a bar all day cracking jokes?

Hopefully the networks take these kind of awards to heart and keep churning out quality shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Louie.” If I see one more generic police/forensic/court drama on the air, I just might throw my TV out the window.
